Aside from the fact that matinee sounds hilariously similar to manatee (sea cow, duh), a matinee is also a super cheap way to entertain your date. Show off that savvy, frugal side. Sure the movie was only four bucks, but all the more $$ to splurge on popcorn right? Wrong. Fill up beforehand. Those movie theater snacks are wildly overpriced. Your date will not think you’re cheap, if they’re cool, they’ll be feverishly impressed.
Oh, you’re way passed dating and have actually produced some munchkins who may or may not be terrorizing your home? Take ‘em to a matinee. Perfect way to get an hour or so of peace.
